Meet Our Teachers

Few members of our team are as follows:

A message from our Director’s desk

When learning is purposeful creativity blossoms, when creativity blossoms thinking emanates. When thinking emanates knowledge is fully lit. When knowledge is lit the economy flourishes

It has become imperative that education be broad, creative and targeted as we deal with new types of challenges in today’s world. Learning should be deliberate and encourage innovative thinking, rather than simply passing on academic knowledge.

This means empowering children with a variety of essential skills to help them deal with change. It has become essential to empower children, to teach them resilience and the art of adapting to a changing world. Such education will facilitate a community of informed and emotionally intelligent citizens, which is the need of the day.

At Sofia Public School, our objective is to provide a holistic education that holds the key to unleashing the potential of children in a new-age world.

We allow the child to grow at their own pace. Teachers are trained to identify and activate a child’s natural flair for a specific subject or competency. This is really the hallmark of Sofia Public School – to be able to successfully nurture the individual learning needs of each child.

Our teachers are at the heart of Sofía Public School. They are carefully screened to make sure that only the best in the profession join our team.

All teaching techniques have been developed in-house and we believe in Continuous Professional Development. To keep up with the latest developments in education, teachers continue to participate in school-led training programmes and workshops. At the pre-school level, we offer learning based on age-wise activities to improve the children’s cognitive and motor skills, while we provide practical, hands-on experiments to fuel a child’s imagination and their need for exploration at the primary stage. In high school, students become skilled at making decisions, thinking analytically and learning to cope with competitive environments.

Discipline and work are part of the ethos of the Sofia Public School and we instil these qualities as part of our curriculum. We encourage sports and cultural activities to promote the global development of children, which is important for us. In summary, the success of education lies in helping children lead useful lives and develop the skills necessary to face an increasingly complex world. This is what we propose at Sofía Public School.
